It seems like living in Miami, you are continually being threatened by heavy storms causing flooding. However this may seem it is like mother nature is out to get you, it is the sad truth. Because of this, you as a homeowner need to prepare yourself. Are you familiar with water extraction? At Restoration Doctor, we are one of the best restoration companies that you can trust to get the job done.


The Process

Being a flood victim is never a good thing. It can happen via storm or a broken pipe. Maybe it is from sewage backup or a shower that has been clogged and left on for too long. Regardless of the cause, all of these situations have one thing in common: there is no time to waste. Your home needs to undergo an extraction process as soon as possible because the longer water remains in your home, even more problems can arise, such as the growth of mold and the water rotting the wood in between the foundations of the house, or anywhere else. Aside from being a health hazard, it can damage the integrity and infrastructure of your home.


Always remember that it is much better to trust in our professionals with heavy-duty water removal, but you can jumpstart the water extraction process yourself while waiting for the professionals to arrive. Taking these extra steps will ensure that their work is much easier and faster, keeping everyone happy.


What is the Difference Between Smart and Dumb Water?

Dumb water is the water that just lies around your home. It is visible or hidden within carpeting and padding. In these circumstances, a professionally trained technician can remove the rest of the water that the regular wet vacuum may have missed, using advanced water extraction tools. Consider compressing the carpeting with a weighted extractor, so that more water is brought to the surface to be extracted.

Smart water is the kind of water that can somehow get into areas that it should not be able to access in the first place. The strange thing is, you may not even be aware that there is a problem until you see wet spots along the walls, or until the mold settles in. So after a bad flooding or a particularly strong rain, just be alert and aware and have things checked.


If your residential home is negatively affected by water damage, it is never wise to fix the problem yourself. Do not trust a handy DIY on Youtube. Remember, this is the home that you are dealing with. What if you make a mistake that will make the problem worse then it already is? You can’t afford to cause further damage. Get an experienced contractor to fix the problem for you.
